    F4TF #7 – The Naked Truth

      Food for thought Friday asked this question – Are you at ease being naked?  Do you feel more comfortable clothed or unclothed?  Can you explain why you feel this? I have spent years not feeling comfortable with my body, in fact for most of my life now I think of it.  Somehow my experience of corporeality was linked to shame and guilt rather than pleasure and gratitude for most of my life.  Much has happened to change that over the recent past and strangely the thing that has helped most has been doing the thing that everyone warns against namely posting naked or revealing pictures on the internet. My first…

    Wheel of life

    I had an accident in the early hours on my way home from work on Friday night. I hit black ice at the bottom of the lane and slid across the bend embedding my wing in the bank and narrowly missing a pole and the bridge over the canal. Once I got my breath back from the impact I had to work out what to do. I was miles from anywhere in the deepest part of the valley with very few houses around me. Any recovery vehicle would struggle to find me let alone get there and the phone signal was patchy. I managed to push it off the bank…

    Disappointing

    I hate disappointing and upsetting people. So much so that I will continue in jobs and relationships that I should long have drawn a line in the sand for and shouted “stop!” and “I’m leaving now!” Back in August I had been working with someone on a project that was launching new products into a market I knew little about and had no contacts in. I had been doing this since the beginning of the year after leaving my business and had been paid on average around £500 a month, just enough to get by on but I was hoping for a properly paid job when the products were launched…

    Home

    As I sit at my desk this Sunday morning I am surrounded by the sounds coming from the radio which is permanently tuned to www.bbc.co.uk/6music.  Cerys Matthews accompanies most of my Sunday mornings, during which I delight in her eclectic, earthy and yet at times whimsical choices.  I feel we would have so much to talk about if we were to meet.  Her life interests me with its combination of music, travel and family and is one which appeals to my sense of what my life has,in part, been and could it be more fully in my future. This morning I supported a friend through the first morning post breakup…

    Are you happy?

    I was asked this on twitter (@_Masterseye) the other evening and above is my reply. The question threw me a little.  To explain –  my choices and actions were beong set against a decision by the question poser not to pursue their own interests and desires so as to protect their marriage and so to them my choice could easily be seen to be a shallow one – surely I couldn’t leave my marriage just because of sex? There wasn’t judgement from this person nor is there from me regarding their choices. We all do what we can, when we can. It was just honest curiosity, after all I seem…
